PESACHIM 106 - dedicated by Uri Wolfson in honor of his Chavrusa, Rav Mordechai Rabin of Har Nof.


(a) After learning the obligation to recite Kidush by day, from the Pasuk "Zachor es Yom ha'Shabbos le'Kadesho", the Tana asks from where we learn the obligation by night. This is wrong for two reasons.
What are they?

(b) What do we really learn from the Pasuk as such?

(c) From where do we learn Kidush by day?

(d) What does Kidush by day comprise, and why do we need to recite it?

(a) When Rav Ashi arrived in Mechuza, and they honored him with 'Kidusha Rabah', he did not know what that was.
What is 'Kidusha Rabah', and why is it called by that name?

(b) How did Rav Ashi escape from his predicament?

(c) Which Pasuk from Koheles did he quote regarding himself?

(d) What would Rav Ashi have done had that old man not bent down to drink the wine when he did?

(a) How did Rebbi Zeira interpret the words of Rebbi Chiya's sons, who said that Havdalah may be recited during the entire week?

(b)Why must we explain 'until Wednesday' as being exclusive?

(c) In which way does the distinction between the two halves of the week apply to Gitin as well?

(d) Why does the concession of reciting Havdalah until Tuesday not extend to the Berachah of 'Ner'?
